    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 196.00

    Herodots Historie ist das erste erhaltene Geschichtswerk Europas.

In der Tat ist gerade das mythische Geschichtenerzählen ein Hauptcharakteristikum bei Herodot und... more...

  • Omero e i suoi oratoriby Stefano Dentice di Accadia Ammone

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 152.00
